  • Whether blameworthy or not, the use of the cloak of social responsibility, and the nonsense spoken in its name by influential and prestigious businessmen, does clearly harm the foundations of a free society. I have been impressed time and again by the schizophrenic character of many businessmen.

Due diligence is best demonstrated when a business decision such as an acquisition has intelligence as its foundation. Utilizing the best available intelligence will not guarantee success but it will certainly help you make more value- creating rather than value-destroying decisions.” ...

  • In that spirit, we approach the costs of reaching the MDGs through two routes. In the first route, we focus exclusively on the first goal, namely, reducing income poverty by half between 1990 and 2015. Inasmuch as income poverty is linked to the other targets, such as infant mortality and primary enrolment, achieving this goal will go some way towards achieving the others. The link is stronger the more the actions to promote growth are associated with those to promote human development. If we estimated the costs by adding the costs of achieving each of the...

  • Relatively recently, a Children’s Food Security Scale (CFSS) consisting only of the eight child-referenced items in the larger 18-item FSS has been validated by USDA/ERS. The CFSS can be scored and scaled to more directly depict the food security status of children in a household. This child-referenced scale has also been shown to yield higher prevalence of child hunger when administered separately than is obtained from the household-level FSS. 11 The eighteen questions comprising the FSS are shown in Table 1, with the eight items that make up the CFFS in the lower section.

  • How would deleveraging affect a bank’s weighted average cost of funds? Our results suggest that if leverage declines, the cost of equity will also fall. For example, if leverage of the average bank halves to 10, the market beta would fall by 10 basis points. This implies that the average equity factor for banks will fall by 0.4% to 13.0%. Assuming a 5% cost of debt, the weighted average cost of funds for the bank would be 5.8% (ie 0.10*13.0% + 0.90*5%). 7 This is only about 40 basis points higher than when leverage is equal to 20, the average...
